Lamorna Cove - a tiny bay in Cornwall, picturesque, unspoilt. A hundred years ago it was the haunt of a colony of artists. Today, Mel Pentreath hopes it is a place where she can escape the pain of her mother's death and a broken love affair, and gradually put her life back together.
Renting a cottage in the enchanting but overgrown grounds of Merryn Hall, Mel embraces her new surroundings and offers to help her landlord, Patrick Winterton, restore the garden. Soon she is daring to believe her life can be rebuilt.
Then Patrick finds some old paintings in an attic, and as he and Mel investigate the identity of the artist, they are drawn into an extraordinary tale of illicit passion and thwarted ambition from a century ago, a tale that resonates in their own lives. But how long can Mel's idyll last before reality breaks in and everything is threatened?

Nice story a bit overly dramatic female characters
Scenery, discovery, drama
None realy sticks out. The story flows without any climatic moment.
As before, I cannot point a single scene that stood out.
Not really. It was enjoyable, the story interesting enough, but the overdramatic female characters kind of ruined it a bit.
I didn't connect with the main character enough, I supose. It's a romantic book, and I was expecting more from the past and less from the present, a bit more history and less romance.
The story is there though and I enjoyed reading it. The narrator is very nice too.
